Covid-19: opening of a screening centre at CNIT
The Île-de-France Regional Health Agency (ARS) is opening a screening centre for Covid-19 at the CNIT until the end of winter.
Located on the site of the recently closed Red d'hippo restaurant, the centre is open from Monday to Saturday, from 9:00 am to 14:00 pm for priority groups, over 6 years old, in possession of a prescription and from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm for the general public.
Screening conditions from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
PCR screening (in the nose) is free and does not require an appointment to be made. The time slot from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm is reserved for priority persons who :
- have a medical prescription,
- have had risky contact with a confirmed case, or have been contacted by CPAM or ARS as part of the contact investigation,
- are health professionals and/or assimilated professionals working in the home.
Screening by appointment, via the dedicated ARS telephone platform, is strictly reserved for treating doctors, who are considered as having priority.
As regards waiting for results, the ARS promises to send them by email within 24 hours.
Open to the public from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
Since Monday, October 26th, the screening center is open to the general public and without appointment from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm from Monday to Saturday.
Results are generally transmitted 24 to 48 hours after PCR screening.
